you're watching our live from moscow with me to mom would say good to have you with us now hurricane sandy has severely disrupted the u.s. presidential election campaign with rallies canceled and plans for early voting thrown into chaos the storm is fast approaching the u.s. east coast threatening over fifty million people in new york thousands of flights have been cancelled and the transport network has been shut down following message back you ations of course one of the marina but is there she joins us live from new york good to see you there marina and of course stuart of braving the strong the heart of the approach is already being felt in some areas lots of damage has been reported so far well so far the damage that has been reported this is at least thousand new yorkers are without power and as you mentioned a lot of things have been closed in new york city including the trains the buses
are not working the tunnels have closed as of this evening the major bridges in new york city will be closed our schools are closed at new york stock exchange of. forces flow is that is monday and tuesday nobody knows what is to com but new york city mayor michael bloomberg did go on television as of six pm monday evening addressing all new yorkers saying that if they have not evacuated there is no time left to evacuate all new yorkers should now remain indoors because the storm is shasta approaching the new york city officials now encourage everyone to remain away from their windows to make sure they have an and of whom water if they need to leave their apartment do not take the elevator of course nearly four hundred thousand new yorkers were encouraged to evacuate their homes that is if there are. they were. known zones that are too close to the water we had in flooding taking place throughout new york city in neighborhoods close to the water as well as
states like new jersey in connecticut and maryland but of course the worst has yet to be seen because sandy is not here yet movie fast approaching new york city and clearly people are very much concerned and awaiting to see what kind of damage will be cost money to. tell us what's the situation with new way you know you prepare for what's coming. all i am prepared on say thank you for asking i'm fortunate i'm in the center of manhattan i'm not close to the water and so things are relatively calm by me i just went out but things are like outside and there was no damage that i saw but that's around park avenue and twentieth street where there are a lot worse pieces by lower manhattan where many are concerned that there is going to be knee jerk flooding in the subways and in the tunnels if sandy causes them out to damage that meteorologists are expecting. just a final question to you the u.s.
presidential election is in its final leg right now can you tell us in what ways has a storm affected the presidential race well there's an immediate effect because although you. president obama and his opponent mitt romney both suspended their campaigning . but president obama went back to washington and our romney as now we're in a silent mode but we do know that there will be an effect on any early on. because most people can't get to the polls at this moment in early voting usually that of a democratic party but we don't know what kind of damage will be caused by next week if the power goes out and millions are affected towns and cities are flooded how are people going to get to the polls in six or seven days that is the major concern but that's something that we can insist and we until we see the outer mouth of hurricane sandy which is on its way right now well brace yourself marina hope you'll be ok in the next couple of hours will obviously be checking in to see if
everything is going well with you thank you very much marina in new york. right now tom hayden and then and civil rights activists believes that how we can it could affect the outcome of the election that's destroying the legitimacy of the election potentially on the east coast. early voting in is is is been wiped out in these cities in the states the voting of the elderly on election day the voting of the poor on election day. the voting in the of new yorkers on election day is likely to be diminished through no fault of their own. and that will affect the outcome of the election but at the same time as you well know it's extremely possible to manipulate the computers so if it's
a close election it will be protested and contested as illegitimate. throughout the presidential race in the u.s. r.t. has been looking at it from a different perspective including that all the occupy movement the campaign has become the most expensive in the country's history with major corporations pouring billions into both cans and some people activists believe it's wall street which will ultimately win regardless of who's elected independent journalist jamieson believes that this will keep the movement growing even when the elections all of the presidential election united states really sucks all of the oxygen out of the room there is essentially no political work that can be done during an election i would say that the many different organizing projects that different you know organizers and instrumental motivators in occupy have taken on in this period where without you know. actually argue quite well for the future of the movement that
there's a moment of political maturation happening among occupiers and i think that. you know occupy wall she was really useful in that it introduced everybody to each other and gave everyone a common vocabulary and a common conceptual framework for understanding the problems and that people are organizing in solidarity with one another in a in a really promising way but essentially the story of american politics is that it is completely incapable of reforming it is intransigent it is in the death grip of a system of corporate acquisition and accumulation that we cannot get out of. the coverage of the u.s. presidential campaign will continue on and on line all the way up to the load plus don't miss the final round of the third party candidates debate their take on the issues largely ignored by the funk runs you can watch the debate exclusive. next monday. governor romney and i are we both agree we agree we
have to bring the tax rates down i felt the same as the president did governor romney i'm glad. you agree let's get back to something the president i agree on and you tube you agree that the voters have a choice perhaps you wonder who to vote for when romney and obama agree on so many things remember you do have other options come november sixth tune in to see the second round of debates between the major third party candidates right here on r.g.p. . russia's foreign minister has urged all sides in the syrian conflict to engage in dialogue that's after the muslim holiday truce ended in violence. speaking after meeting the un's peace envoy in moscow you got a piece going up has been following the talks in the russian capital. even though it was supposed to last just four days the ceasefire in syria didn't work and now the question on everybody's lips is what happens next and both russia's foreign
minister and special envoy brahimi are placing their bets on this one even communique which was signed by wall power center by just both sides of the coptic in syria to simultaneously put their weapons down and also for equal pressure to be applied on both of them from the outside but according to russia's foreign minister far from all countries which signed this agreement back in geneva are playing by the rules that i see in the in the lead so you'd use to russia is probably the only country along those that took part in the geneva talks on the thirtieth of june which negotiates regularly with all sides in the syrian conflict the government and all opposition groups with no exceptions because we expect our western partners and partners in the region to do the same they should get used to the idea that without dialogue with the syrian government virtually nothing can be achieved and this is currently a major problem in moving towards a political process in syria internal special envoy brahimi said he is sorry that
the ceasefire plan didn't work it was negotiated to take place during the course of the feast of sacrifice was supposed to end today but was in fact broken right on the first day with a deadly blast in damascus then violence continued in different parts of the country throughout the weekend and was told by another deadly explosion in damascus on monday and russia's foreign minister says that with these provocations taking place the syrian government is also making disproportionate responses so mr brahimi is facing a very tough task finding some sort of a diplomatic solution and more importantly making it work he himself says that you know level of distrust between the two sides of the conflict in syria is so high right now it won't even when they begin discussing some sort of obligations each one expects automatically the other one to break its promises. the last day of the syrian cease fire was mobbed by a more violence car bombs ripped through damascus killing ten government jets
bombarded the capital suburbs in an effort to quell the uprising the dr ali mohammed from the media bloc of the syria tribe really believes that western powers shouldn't include no president assad when talking about peace in the country my my colleague bill dobbs spoke to him early on and here's what he had to say. first of all the present as of the present a lot of syrians and he is obviously a powerful person and he enjoys a lot of support from the people and most importantly from the economy which is an important player in the story of this into all the players should not dictate the outcome of the struggle before even the negotiations start and so it only makes sense that they should talk to people on the ground. one of the most important ones is first and second about the issue of extremist groups now playing a role in what's happening in syria the international envoy lakhdar brahimi he acknowledged today that there are extremist groups there and seemingly not controlled by anybody is peace in syria told achievable when you've got
a situation like that we need to look at this in the light of who is sending money and weapons to be extremist groups if turkey manages to cross the borders myself really and if the countries that harbor the money and say look at history extremist groups to stop doing that then we can see this in syria but as long as there are extremists who are full of hungry people sending them money and weapons we should expect this to be far far. so i had for you this hour the small pain that i had for hot up greece as athens struggles to pass reforms they'd need to get another cash injection its creditors are planning to request even more sacrifices that's still to come this hour on our team to shop break.
